Household Economy. — A great deal may be saved a family, ard or- 
der and comfort promoted, by the mistress knowing how things snoutd 
be done, though she may not be required, in all eases, to do them her-. { 
self. And a vast deal is wasted, and many families ultimately reduced 
to want, for lack of economy in the household, and of intelligence 
and good supervision on, the part of the mistress. The duty of wo- 
men is to manage well the affairs of the household; and to qualify 
them for the performance of this duty, girls should learn what they 
ought to, practice when they become women. Nothing is so great 
an accomplishment in a young married female — nothing of which a 
youn? husband is so proud — and certainly very few things so condu- 
cive to the welfare and happiness of the married life — as a familiar 
acquaintance, with domestic duties, and a cheerful willingness to per- 
form them with fidelity. 

" To make Potato Bread. — "'ash and boil good sized potatoes, peel 
and mash them fine, or pass them through a sieve ; add two or three 
parts of flour, to one of potatoes, and a little more yeast than usual. 
Knead well, and allow the dou h to stand a proper time to ferment, 
and bake. The bread is as palatable to many, and as wholesome, as 
wheaten bread, and effects a great saving of flour, which may be aa 
object in scarce times. 



Richardson's almanac. 



RULE FOR FINDING THE DAY OF THE WEEK ON WHICH 
• ANY GIVEN YEAR BEGINS. 

Divide the date by 4 and add the product to the date, disregarding 
fractions ; then divide. the amount by 7, and if there be no remainder, 
the first day of January for the siven year will be Sunday; if one re- 
mainder, it will be Monday; if two, Tuesday, &c. If, however, in 
dividing by 4 there be no remainder, the first of January will be one 
day earlier. Thus: 

4)1839 
459-J-3 

7)2298 
"328+2 
is Sunday, 1 Monday, 2 Tuesday: hence, as there was a remain- 
der in dividing by 4, the first of January, 1839, was Tuesday. 

4)1844 
461-t 

7)2305 

"329+2 

is Sunday, 1 Monday, 2 Tuesday ; but as there was no remainder 
in dividing by 4, the fit st day of January, 1844. was one leas, or Monday, 

If there be a remainder when you divide by 4 and none when you 
divide by 7, the first of January for the given year will , be Sunday; 
but if there be no remainder when you divide by 4 and none when 
you divide by seven, the first of January will be Saturday. Hence, 
one remainder when you divide by 7 will make Monday or Sunday, as 
the case may be, &c. 

Having found the day of the week on which the year , entered,' the 
day of the week for any month in the year may be found by the fol- 
lowing old and, to msny, familiar rule: 

Jan. Feb. Mar. Apr. May. June. July. Aug. Sept. Oct. Nov. Dec, 
1st. 4th. 4th. 7th. 2d. 5th. 7th. 3d. 6th. 1st. 4th. 6th. 
A. D. D. G. B. E. G. C. F. A. D. F. 

Explanation. — The first seven letters of thiralphabet are taken, and 
a part of ihem repeated to make twelve, one for each month. The 
above tiblewill now be easily understood. If January, represented 
by A, comes in on any given day, say Sunday, then February will 6qr 
ter on » ednesday, the fourth day from Sunday, as D., which repre- 
sents February, is the fourth letter from A.;- and so April will enter 
on Saturday, the seventh day from Sunday, as G is the seventh letter 
from A., and so on with each month i 

_ As it is difficult to remember the letters in their order, some ques- 
tionable poet has made the following couplet, each word of which 
begins with one of these letters: 

"At Dover Owelt John Brown, Esquire, 
Good Christopher French And David Fryer."' 

As indicated by the initial letters for those months, February and 
March always enter on the sarne day of the week, except in leap J ear.

"OVER THE RIVER." 

Over the river they beckon to me — 

Loved ones who have passed to the further side ; 
The gleam of their snowy robes I see, * 

But their voices are lost by the dashing tide. 
There's one with ringlets of sunny gold, 

And eyes the reflection of Heaven's own blue; 
He crossed in the twilight gray and cold, 

And the pale mist hid him trorri mortal view. 
We saw* not the angels that met him there, 

The gate of the city we could not see ; 
Over the river, over. the river, 

My brother stands wailing to welcome me. 

Over the river the boatman pale, 

Carried another — the household pet ; 
Her brown curls waved in the gentle gale — 

Darling Minnie! I see her yet! 
She crossed on her bosom her dimpled hands, 

And fearlessly entered the phantom bark ; 
We watched it glide from the silver sands, 

And all our sunshine grew strangely dark. 
We know she is safe on the further side, 

Where all the ransomed and angels be; 
Over the river, the mystic river, 

My childhood's idol is waiting for me. 

For none return from those quiet shores 

Who cross with the boatman cold and pale; 
"We hear the dip of the golden oars, 

And catch a glimpse of the snowy sail. 
And lo! they have passed from our yearning hearts; 

They cross the stream and are gone for aye ; 
We may not sunder the veil apart 

That hides from our vision the gates of day. 
We only know that their bark- no more 

May -ail with us o'er life's stormy sea, 
Yet somewhere, I know, on the unseen shore, 

They watch and beckon, and wait for me. 

And I sit and think when the sunset's gold 

Is flushing the river and hill, and shore, 
I shall one day stand by the water cold, ' 

And list for the sound of the boatman's oar. 
I shall watch for the gleam of the flapping sail; 

I shall hear the boat as it gains the .strand ; 
I shall pass from sight with the boatman pale, 

To the better shore of the spirit land. 
I shall know the loved who have gone before, 

And joyfully sweet will the meeting be, 
When over the river, the peaceful river, 

The Angel of Death shall carry me.

GENERAL DIRECTIONS FOR COLLECTING AND DRYING 
MEDICINAL SUBSTANCES OF THE VEGETABLE KING- 
DO AJ 

Prom Dr. F. P. Porcher's "Botanical Resources/' 

All leaves, flowers and herbs should be preferably gathered in clear, 
dry weather, in the morning., after the dew is exhaled. 

The roots of medicinal plants, although more advantageously ga- 
thered, at certain periods, to be hereafter specified, do not lose 
their medicinal virtues in consequence of being dug\in mid-summer. 
It is probable that most of those imported are thus collected by sav- 
ages, or ignorant persons, when the plant is in full leaf, it being then 
more easily recognized. 

Plants, annual, should be gathered at the time when their vegeta- 
tion is more vigorous, which is -generally from the time they begin -to 
flower uatil their leaves begin to change. 

Plants, biennial, should, in most instances, -be gathered in the sec- 
ond season of their growth, and about the time of flowering. 

Roots of annuals are to be gathered just before the time of flow- 
ering. 

Roots of biennials are to be gathered after the vegetation of the 
first year has ceased. 

Roots of perennials are to be gathered in the spring, before vegeta- 
tion has commenced Roots should be washed, and the smaller fibres, 
unless they are the part exployed, should be then. separated, from the 
body of the root, which, when of any considerable size, is to be cut 
in slices previous to being dried 

Bulbs ai e to be 1 ' gathered after the new bulb is perfected, and before 
it has besun to vegetate, which is at the time the leaves decay. 
Those which, are to be preserved, fresh should be buried in dry sand. 
. Barks, whether of the root, trunk or branches, should be gathered 
in the autumn, or early in the spring. The dead epidermis or outer 
bark, and the decayed parts, should be removed. Of some trees (as 
t'^e elm) the inrrer bark only is preserved. 

Leaves are to be gathered after their full development, before the 
fading of tht flowers. Ihe leaves of biennials do not attain their 
perfect qualities until the second year 

Flowers should, in general, be gathered at the time of their*expan- 
sion, before or immediately after they have fully opened; some : — as 
the Rosa Gallica — while in bud. 

Aromatic herbs are to be gathered when in flower. Stalks and 
twigs should be collected in autumn, fceeds should be collected at 
the period of their full maturity. 



Squirrel Skin Shoes. — Squirrel skins tacked down to a board, the 
hair next to the board, with hickory ashes sprinkled over them, for a 
few days, to facilitate the removal of the hair, and then placed in a 
strong decoctk n of red oak bark,, will, at the end of four days, make 
excellent leather, far stronger and tougher than calfskin. Four skins 
will make a nair of ladies' shoes.

To make a good Light at light Expense. — Take a cup of grease of 
any kind (lard or tallow) and into it put a sycamore ball, saturate in 
the same, and then light it — you will have a light superior I o two 
candles. One ball will last three or four nights. The expense will 
be three or Jour cents a night — not more, «ven at the present prices 
of tallow. 

Three dishes from Beets.— -A. city correspondent furnishes the re- 
sult of an experiment for making three dishes of vegetables from one 
plant. He says : 

" Beets, as we all know, are very good and very wholesome, when 
the roots only are cooked in the ordinary manner; but many do not 
know that the tops make most excellent salad, rivalling, i not sur- 
passing, Scotch kale; * and a still, smaller number do not know that the 
stem or shank of the leaf, when cut up and cooked as snaps, make a 
dish which but very few can tell from the real article. Let any one 
who wishes to satisfy himself on the subject try it, and he will thank 
lis for suggesting it to him." 

Interesting to Wearers of Buff Facings. — The white or buff facing 
of the Confederate uniform is so easily soiled and so difficult to clean, 
it is fast going out of use. In defiance of the regulations, our officers 
are having their coats made plain without any facings. In the Eng- 
lish army many regiments have white or buff facings, and they find no 
difficulty in keeping them perfectly clean. A little dry pipe clay well 
rubbed into, the cloth, and then brushed out, is the onljj means used 
by them. If the cloth is greasy, make the pipe clay into a paste with 
a little water, rub this paste on the cloth with a piec>- of sponge or 
any other suitable thing, dry it well, rub the dry powder in and brush 
out; it will clean both the cloth and lace. A coat can be cjeaned in 
this way in ten minutes. '%".' 

A Cure for the Itch. — A gentleman who has tried the' r"emedy in- 
forms us that Alum water is a certain and infallible cure for that 
troublesome disease, the. Itch. Wash five or six times, all over, with 
the water, and the cure is effected. The gentleman who gave us the in- 
formation had been cured thoroughly of the camp itch in its worst form.

Substitute for Coffee — A writer in a London paper, on the authority 
of the celebrated German chemist Liebi-r, says that the seeds of/as- 
paragus, toasted and ground, make a full ii~ — *S: coffee, not easily- 
distinguished from Mocha. The seeds are easily forced from the ber- 
ries by drying them in a moderately warm oven and then rubbing them 
on a sieve. The experiment is worth trying. 

Remedy,for Burns. — The while of an egg has proved a most effica- 
cious remedy for burns. Seven or eight successive applications of 
this substance soothe the pain and exclude the air from the burned 
parts. This remedy is said to be preferable to cullodion or even'' 
cotton. • i 

Hog Cholera — Infallible Remedy. — This terrible disease has played 
sad havoc among the hogs of the land, and any remedy that tends to. 
arrest its progress, would be received with delight by those who own 
this'most invaluable animal. A gentleman has furnished lis a simple 
recipe, which may be relied upon as an effectual and almost infallible 
remedy With it he has cured many hogs that were failing under this 
disease, and has never known any to die to which the medicine has 
been administered: 

Take equal proportions of pine tops and poke root, and boil them 
down to a strong tea; to every fjve gallons of the tea, add a table- 
spoonful of copperas and half a pint of salt. 

This is a remedy that is within the reach of every person, and we 
advise its trial. 

To take out pitch, tar, resin, paint, &c, pour a little alcohol on the 
place, and let it soak in about a half an hour. Then rub it gently, 
and you will find the alcohol has soaked out the glutinous quality, so 
that it will easily crumble out. <■ 

To take Stains out of Silver. — Steep the s lver in soap-lye for the 
space of four hours; then cover it with whiting, wet with vinegar, 
so that it riay lie thick upon it, and dry it by a fire; after which rub 
off the whiting and pass it over with dry bran, and the spots will not 
only disappear, but the silver will look exceedingly bright. 

To Mend Iron Pots. — Mix finely sifted lime with some white of aa 
egg till a thick kind of paste is formed; then add some iron filings. 
Apply this to the fracture and the vessel will be found to be nearly 
**s sound as ever. 

Whooping Cough — Dr. Wilsell, of South Carolina, recommends the 
use of nitric acid diluted and sweetened, so as to resemble lemonade, 
as a palliative in whooping cough. He lets his patients drink as much 
, as they please of it.
